NIDA accepting teen applications

The National Institute on Drug Abuse is now accepting applications from teens to join its Teen Advisory Group.

All teens in grades eight to 11 are welcome to apply.

The TAG meets online and by conference call four to six times a year to share thoughts and feedback about NIDA for Teens materials, the program’s website and other components. TAG members receive a $25 stipend for each discussion in which they participate. Discussions will be held in the evening via webinar and conference call.

Since 2009, the TAG has been critically important in helping NIDA reach teens with engaging information about drug abuse and addiction.

The TAG will start in September and end in August 2014.

Anyone interested can email to request an application. Applications are due by June 30.
